I have mixed feelings about this article. Since I don’t really write nor read for fun in my spare time, I can’t relate to the author’s viewpoint. I do, however, understand what the author is trying to convey to the readers. They want it to be known that it’s common for people to perform better when they know an audience will be judging them or looking/reading their work.

I agree and disagree with this statement. I agree because it makes sense why people would try harder to get a better review and leave a better impression on someone higher up. I, however, cannot relate to this statement 100%. When I do writing assignments for classes and such, I do try to do a better job than if no one was reading it. On the other side, when I do art work, I mainly focus on creating something I, myself, find pleasing to my eyes and what I think will look okay. I may keep a small bit of attention into others who may be looking at my pieces to make sure it could be pleasing to others and capable of being understood after some explaining.
